Default how-to do an Evo power switch by-pass

This is my first tuturial so please bear with me. Thank you.
I think this tuturial is only useful to those who have a lithium setup:confused2:

Supplies needed
-Soldering iron.
-Evo car or truck circuit board.
-Side cut nippers/side cutter.(see pics.)
-Helping hands.(this is optional, i dont use it but it helps if you are not good at soldering)
-steady hand, unless you want to make a hole in your circuit board.:halo:

Step one:
Look for the on and off switch on the back of your circuit board,
it looks like this:

Step two:
Grab your side cut nippers or what ever you use and place them like this:

once placed then rip off the silver part.

Step three:
when you get till here just take it off with your fingers:

Step four:
when you have removed it you should have something like this:

remove the brown part aswell

Step five:
when you have removed it you should see 3 or 4 pins:

remove these aswell.

Step six:
you should now see four joints(circles):

the ones encircled in black.
EDIT: after posting the tut, i saw that you can not see the red or black circles so,
there are 4 joints, you need to solder the two joints on the right under the "on" part
thanks you and sorry

Step seven:
Now grab your soldering iron and solder the two joints encircled in red.
Once you are done you should have something that looks like this:

Thats it, you're done!
Now just dont leave your batteries plugged in or you will ruin them.

Thanks for reading, i hope you guys use it.
